Islam, Religion of Peace
Islam is a peaceful religion, that teaches its followers love and humanity. Islamic teachings are not for a specific region or era, these are for all eras and for all types of people.
Before Islam, the whole world was immersed in the darkness of ignorance. There was no such thing as peace and love. Islam taught them welfare, humanity, good behavior, peace, and love.
Islam sowed the seeds of peace by eradicating hatred and terror. Islam dislikes killing and corruption. In the last inspired book of the Holy Quran, Allah Almighty said:
“Who kills one man kills the whole of humanity, and he who saves one man saves the whole of humanity”. (Holy-Quran)
No other religion has given such a great place and status to a human soul, and such a broad concept before Islam.
Islam has taught mankind a way of life. Islam is the cradle of peace and love which is the source of guidance for the world of humanity.
Islam forbids controlling anger, spreading hatred, inciting sedition. Allah says:
“And Allah does not like mischief-makers”. (Holy-Quran)
Islam Declare peace as a blessing of God and made peace an essential element for the development and success of any state.
Islam believes in Forgiveness Over Revenge
The last prophet of Islam, Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) always taught peace and tolerance.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) excluded anyone who harmed others from the realm of Islam.
The hadeeth of the Prophet (Peace be Upon him) is:
“A Muslim is one from whose hands and tongue other human beings are safe and from whom no one’s life or property is in danger”.
Islam prevents us from spreading evil. The name of Islam is the promotion of peace. There are many incidents in Islamic history that are high examples of Islam’s pacifist attitude.
Islam eradicated prejudice and narrow-mindedness through peace and love. The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said:
“‘He is not one of us who calls for persecution and kills on the basis of persecution”.
Islam is the name of humanity and tolerance, Islam is the sea of politeness and civilization. The message of Islam is peace and importance wherever it reaches.
